Sure toleg, as many friends as you want for the MEET, but I'm afraid I'll have to say no to friends for the DRIVE - sorry, but I can't give any room for play otherwise we'll be asking for trouble. I hope you understand - even though you know your friends well, I don't.

The Jebel Hafeet DRIVE went so well precisely because it was limited to uaeboost members who I knew would not go beyond the limit; if I open it too wide, at one point there will be someone who goes beyond and that will be trouble for all.

I want to be able to enjoy events like this without worrying someone's going to do something stupid, and the only way I can think of doing that is by keeping the numbers tight under control.

Sorry guys. Any DRIVES I do will be on invitation only, and any MEETS will be open to all. I can't think of a better way...

Sure, buddy - I'll send out the invitations to the DRIVE by PM next week, small tight-knit group.

All uaeboost members and friends are welcome to the MEET, so spread the word.

Also, when you come to the MEET we get to know you personally and so you will get invited to any future DRIVES, too!

Nutty and Stone, I'm counting you in for registering for the DRIVE too, although it shows only the MEET.

Next week I'm going to be asking for help with finding and bringing planks of wood, buckets, rope, and other obstacles.

Everybody make sure you realize there will be no speed, so it'll be really different from what you're used to - think crazy golf!!!

I registered for meeting only since my driving skills really sucks
& I don't wanna hit there & scratch there ( but the obstacles are just ropes
n buckets ??? right ?) if so then I'm in , at least I'll get improved without worrying
about dents

The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'till I'm sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.

Yeah, man - no way I want to scratch up our beautiful cars!!!

The demerit points will be counted on the wheels touching the obstacles... I guess you could fall off the planks, though... oh well, minus one for the prizes!!!! LOOOL

Just kidding, bud - you'll never have to do something you're not comfortable with - it's all an excuse to have fun together anyways

Count you in?

Yes, PM will come shortly.

Things we need are planks of wood (to balance car on), rope (to outline borders), chalk (to draw circuit), buckets or shopping plastic bags (cones), and anything else that can work to set out a very tight, almost impossible to manouver circuit.

Bring what you can!
